Benefits of Collaborative Divorce
In a traditional, contested divorce, a judge makes the decisions and controls
proceedings. Collaborative divorce is a matrimonial dispute resolutions
process where both parties and their attorneys commit themselves to resolving
their differences equitably and fairly without resorting to court litigation.
The first step is for both parties to disclose your income and assets voluntarily.
Then, you, your spouse, and your lawyers meet to discuss all issues associated
with divorce and find a way to arrive at an agreement. Both parties’
lawyers will draft legal documents which detail your agreements, which
are submitted to the court for approval without you and your spouse having
to go through a long court hearing.
The advantages of collaborative divorce in Northern California include

- More control over the outcome of divorce

- Process is entirely confidential
- Demonstrates that both parties are capable of working together in the future,
